Consistent with the Orange approach to ministry and family, Joiner and Neiuwhof encourage parents to find ways to discuss faith in natural family settings. They list some opportunities that work well with the resources that are available from the ReThink Group, though the book never offers up these resources specifically except in some advertising at the end of the book. They also encourage the spiritual growth of the parents as well, which can happen by taking time out from life and by getting involved with small groups in a church setting.
What is great about this book is the honesty that the writers show. They are willing to admit their own parenting mistakes, and they never speak from the position of superiority. As they note, so many Christian parenting books only bring about feelings of guilt and inadequacy. This book says that we are all imperfect, and we need influences from outside the home to help us figure all of this out.
